Improve the Exterior of Your Home

When it comes to exterior home remodeling, siding is a key feature that dramatically affects a home’s appearance. Exterior siding options run the gamut from wood, vinyl, or fiber cement. Certain materials are more durable than others but choosing the right material for your home’s style and budget is key to getting the most bang for your buck. 

When choosing the right siding for your home, you’ll first have to decide what kind of siding you want. Each type has advantages and disadvantages. So, you’ll want to consider all these factors before choosing one.

Wood Siding

Many homeowners will find exterior wood siding to be an appealing option. There’s a wide variety of styles and types available, so homeowners should carefully weigh the pros and cons of each before making a decision. Wood siding can be susceptible to damage from water and weather, so homeowners looking for a low-maintenance option must choose a product that is designed to weather the elements.

Remodeling Masters offers wood siding in two styles: board and batten, and shakes. Many luxury homebuilders opt for wood products for their projects, especially high-end homes. In choosing wood, builders look for a natural, warm appearance that communicates timeless beauty. Wood is a natural product, allowing homebuilders and homeowners to create a unique, one-of-a-kind look.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding has long been a popular choice for remodeling and new construction because of its durability, versatility, and relatively low cost. Weather-resistant, vinyl even comes in various textures, tones, and colors, so there’s a style to complement every home. 

Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement siding has many advantages. Its durability, flexibility, and variety of colors and styles make it a good choice for many homes. Fiber cement siding doesn’t rot, peel or flake, unlike wood or vinyl. It’s pest-resistant and fire-resistant, too, unlike other siding materials. Homeowners can paint it with a wide range of colors, opening up many more design options than wood siding.

Special tools, safety precautions, and installation details are required to install fiber cement siding properly. It’s not as easy to work with as wood, and it requires different installation techniques and special care. The siding should be installed using special bonding agents, fasteners, and sealants. Workers need to be trained in proper installation techniques, which is why it’s best to let the professionals handle this kind of exterior remodeling.
